Pittsford Farms Dairy & Bakery is a little locally owned dairy, bakery, ice cream shop, and cafe. They are located behind Schoen Place in the Village of Pittsford. Their milk, which is produced by regional dairy cows, is vat-pasteurized, bottled on-site, and sold in old-fashioned glass bottles.
Using this milk they produce and sell ice cream, frozen custard, butter, buttermilk, chocolate milk, and eggnog. They also sell grocery items such as local baked goods from Baker Street Bakery and Flour City Bread Co., pastas from Flour City Pasta and the Ravioli Shop, coffee from the Merchant of Coffee and Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters, and maple products from Merle Maple.
The ice cream parlor offers 30 flavors (there are even more flavors available to buy in packaged take home quarts). There is also frozen custard available in chocolate, vanilla and a rotating feature flavor. The Dairy also makes ice cream cakes, pies and chipwiches. All ice creams and custards are homemade, made from the dairy's fresh cream.
The on-site bakery makes authentic French breakfast pastries & quiche daily. They also make dessert pastries, pies and cookies. And for lunch (or dinner) they also make mini gourmet pizzas and sometimes soup or sandwiches.
The coffee bar serves fresh Java Joe's coffee (hot or iced), and pastries.

2008-04-12 23:20:29 I didn't see Pittsford Dairy yoghurt there, but they had locally produced as well as Stonybrook yoghurts for sale. —ChrisJohnson
2008-11-30 08:52:38 Story on rnews today says they now take credit cards.
Can anyone tell me where else their milk is available? Anyplace else outside of Pittsford? —TomBellucco
2008-11-30 10:02:09 I could be remembering things weird, but I think I've seen their stuff at Abundance Co-Op and Lori's Natural Foods. We're probably making a pilgrimage to Abundance today, so I'll update this comment if required... —RyanTucker
2009-03-28 00:45:42 WOW Glass containers, thats great ( reminds me when I was little) I wish more stores would have glass bottles & I wish their was still a Milkman !!! —NancySchulz
2009-10-25 18:28:40 Their chocolate milk is delicious. We used to get it at Lori's, but they said they're not selling it anymore since they can't verify that they don't use artificial growth hormones. —DeanRzonca
2010-08-09 13:48:52 I love this place. My husband and I are frequent visitors. I used to not like drinking milk, as I was only accustomed to the grocery store stuff. Pittsford Dairy's milk completely changed my mind! We get the skim milk, which never tastes watery or thin... it tastes more like 2%. The dairy has great customer service and their products are absolutely worth the (small) extra cost. If you haven't tried it yet, you're missing out! —sarah
2010-09-23 22:58:53 I've only begun coming here for my milk needs. So far I've had the 2% and skim. Both are outstanding and I feel great supporting a local farm. It also gives me a good excuse to pick up a pint of their chocolate milk (the best I've ever had). —BatGuano
2011-06-10 10:29:05 Great quality, personal service and a good community atmosphere. We shop here weekly for milk and often for ice creams. We like that they carry other locally produced goodies as well (Leo Bakery and Ravioli shop). Waiting for the new ice cream parlor and shop to open. —DesignDreamz

2012-05-30 21:40:54 Pittsford Farms Dairy is not Eco-Friendly they promote waste & pollution by lower the price of a gallon of milk in a plastic jug by $1.00 & charging $2.00 more for a gallon of milk in glass bottles plus $1.00 deposit, isn't that a nice way to treat customers!
2012-05-31 20:46:58 sarden - if you buy the glass bottle, you pay $2 once. Each time you return, bring your bottle and you pay $0 because your bottle refund cancels out the deposit on the next one. If you buy the plastic gallon, you pay $1 each time. Thus, it's smarter to go with the glass financially and environmentally. —BatGuano
2013-03-23 13:07:47 This place is fantastic! A definite upgrade from the old dairy. They have numerous pastries to choose from and the pinwheel is to die for! It's like a croissant met a cheese danish and sprinkled powdered cinnamon sugar on itself. —AnnieS
